Vehicle Description

Looking for a cool piece of Americana that'll turn heads anywhere it goes? If you're in the market for some vintage metal that's stylish, powerful and has lots of history, who says you have to buy a stuffy, high maintenance trailer queen? Just pick up the phone, call your friends at RK Motors and we'll hook you up with a great car like this awesome Chevelle resto-mod! Combining 572 cubic inches of proven Chevy big block with a stout 6-speed drivetrain and striking gray and silver aesthetics, this gruff ground-pounder draws big crowds and big compliments. And if you're one of the many enthusiasts looking for a fun classic that's unrelentingly cool, it's your ticket to car guy nirvana!

SAME STYLE, NEW SUIT

The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that wrapped a fully stripped body in slick Daytona Gray Metallic two-stage, this razor-sharp resto-mod runs well and shows great! At the front of its gloss, a bright Malibu grille centers a modern, monochromatic "SS" emblem between modern headlights, painted extensions and a filled and painted bumper. Behind that grille, a shaved header leads a chrome-trimmed Super Sport hood, which creeps toward a tinted greenhouse that's caged in Satin Black stainless. At the sides of that hood, a muscular profile has been shaved of everything but modern mirrors and Satin Black door handles. Opposite those pulls, a "C H E V E L L E" branded valance hangs trick taillights above a second painted bumper that's threaded by flush exhaust outlets. And everything gets lit by Metallic Silver Rally Stripes that are edged in precise Gloss Black pinstripes.

BIG BLOCK BLISS

Few cars fit the 'muscle car' description better than a Chevelle. Clocking in at exactly 572 cubic inches, this coupe's rowdy Chevrolet Performance Connect and Cruise ZZ572 twists a hearty 620 horsepower into 650 lb./ft. of tire torching torque! At the top of that legendary mill, twin Spectre cones cap polished tubes, which drop breeze through a coated Holley 4-barrel and a single-plane Chevrolet Performance intake. That intake floods aluminum Chevrolet Performance heads, which tilt milled and polished valve covers between stainless valves, roller rockers, a polished breather and requisite rectangular ports. A hydraulic roller cam plays well with forged pistons, a forged 4340 crank, and forged and shot peened H-beam rods. 9.6 to 1 compression gets sparked by loomed Taylor plug wires and a hot HEI distributor. Billet serpentine components spin a polished water pump between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. Big electric puller fans back a big aluminum radiator. Exhaust rolls through coated Doug's headers. And the car's smoothed, Charcoal Metallic engine bay is dotted with choice detailing like polished tanks, sleeved lines, trick dipsticks, a body-matched brake booster and a custom hood plate.

BUILT TO CRUISE

Bottom-side, the monster mill kicks a tough hydraulic clutch, which kicks a tough Chevrolet Performance Connect and Cruise Tremec T56 Super Magnum 6-speed. That proven drivetrain rides a triangulated 4-link rear-clip, which mixes tubular, Charcoal Gray arms with Charcoal Gray shocks and Charcoal Gray springs. A factory front-clip has been thoughtfully upgraded with a beefy, Charcoal Gray sway bar. That suspension gets led by traditional power steering. Stops are provided by power-assisted discs and drums. Large-diameter pipes breathe through throaty Flowmaster mufflers. And at the corners of the car, attractive American Racing VN430s spin 235/40R18 Continental ContiProContacts in front of 275/45R18 Continental ContiProContacts.

SAME FUN, NEW STYLE

This Chevelle's thorough restoration included the installation of a thoughtfully customized interior that's highly functional and reliably timeless! A monochromatic roll bar traces firm SCAT Procar buckets, which wrap reclining frames in modern, three-point harnesses. A tidy console looks great behind a short Hurst shifter. A padded and painted dash hangs slick AutoMeter Phantom telemetry next to modern, direct-fit audio and controls for Vintage Air conditioning. Fade-free side panels parallel fade-free carpet. A modern rearview mirror integrates a crisp rearview camera. And the driver spins a monochromatic steering wheel around a painted tilt column.

Simply put, this big block Chevelle is some of the coolest metal on the planet! As it sits, the car offers the best of both worlds: a solid cruiser, and a unique classic that sets itself apart from virtual acres of brightly colored pony cars and overwrought land yachts. Call your friends at http://www.RKMotors.com to schedule some seat time!
